So Christmastime is a bit insane right? All the hustle and bustle, shopping, wrapping, travel, visiting with family, the parties, baking, decorating, etc., etc. Crazy how we cram all of this into one month! Reminds me of a Maxine Christmas card I once read where she asks why we put a dead tree in our living room and eat candy from our socks ~ ha!
Laughing through all this craziness is an absolute must for me, which is why, although I like beautifully written Christmas cards espousing peace, joy and goodwill to all, my favorite cards are funny ones with family pictures.
Here are a few of ours from years past:
For our card this year, I imagined a sweet kitchen scene. Something like this:
Nah. We decided it was too much like last year's. So we shot some more...
Eh. They were fine, but not really funny. Then I suggested this (I triple dare you not to laugh!):
Um, OK, probably over the line.
So how about this?!
Yep, this is our card. It's not quite right, a bit twisted, but I love it. The sentiment reads, "Cheers to you and yours this Christmas season!"
We never tire of amusing ourselves.
For me, Christmastime isn't so much about the decorations, fattening foods or crazy traditions, but about giving. And joy. Hopefully I've made you smile and spread a little joy with this post.
